MDA's Board Chairman Testifies Before US Senate Subcommittee to Advocate for Newborn Screening
Date:9/27/2013

ommittee has recommended that it be added to the RUSP. Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) was nominated several years ago but not deemed ready for full review by the Advisory Committee; a pilot for SMA newborn screening is under way. In February 2013, scientific information about the feasibility of newborn screening for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) was presented to the Committee.

A video of the Sept. 26, 2013, Senate subcommittee hearing is available.
